It is the vision of Ocean Springs School District to educate all students to their highest levels of academic achievement, to enable them to reach and expand their potential, and to graduate them prepared to become productive, responsible, and compassionate members of society who will have a positive impact on the world around them.
The mission of Ocean Springs School District is to teach our students essential content, skills, and core values to enable them to transfer knowledge between educational accomplishments and the larger life issues and to have a positive impact on society.
All students can learn.
Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.
Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process with a focus on transfer of learning.
Curriculum and instructional practices should incorporate a variety of differentiated learning activities to accommodate differences in learning styles.
A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning.
Teachers, administrators, parents, school board members and the community share the responsibility for advancing the schools mission.
The Ocean Springs School District is located in a suburban community of approximately 18,000 persons on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast. Life on the Coast slows down in Ocean Springs where there is time to stroll oak-draped streets and discover secluded beaches. Ocean Springs is a community that embraces the arts and is the home of many local, state, and nationally recognized artists. The city offers a wealth of history, good Southern food, galleries, shops, beautiful bayous, and excellent schools. The district has kept pace with the residential and commercial growth of the Gulf Coast by the leadership of its five board of trustees who work to ensure that every student attends exceptional schools in a nurturing atmosphere and receives instruction from the best available educators.
The Ocean Springs School District aspires to be the best school district in Mississippi and one of the top ten percent in the nation. Over 600 dedicated personnel foster excellence in academics, global languages, the arts, and athletics.
